SO SORRY - WE HAVE FILLED THIS PROGRAM! Lytle Creek League of Conservators/No Child Left Indoors Monarch Tagging Event September 15, 2012

Saturday, September 15, the Lytle Creek League of Conservators/No Child left Indoors Volunteers have another fun event with the goal of reconnecting kids and adults to nature and helping them serve as citizen scientists. We will do that by following the Monarch Watch protocol for capturing and tagging monarchs as they make their way south. Mid to late September is the peak time of monarch migration through our area. 
The event will take place in the four-acre restored prairie along the Lytle Creek Greenway and 4-C Bicentennial Trail. The prairie is maintained by the Clinton County Park Board and the bike trail is part of the City of Wilmington Parks and Recreation system. Park at David Williams Park near Fife Avenue and follow the trail to the prairie (about .3 miles).  
The event is from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. This program is free, but please register to help us plan appropriately. The first 5 registrations will receive a special surprise at the event.  This program will be re-scheduled in the event of inclement weather. Butterflies are sun lovers!
This program is suitable for all ages (including adults), but registration is limited and required. Please register HERE.
